Every year, a new Young & Hungry List is compiled from across the industry. Voted on by Hollywood’s most influential players, each list spotlights a fresh slate of up-and-coming creatives preparing to take the next step in their careers. Whether it be a newcomer making their first big splash, a sophomore writer coming into their prime, or an established veteran returning to their roots, they all share one thing: the unrelenting drive to make their mark.
For the seventh year in a row, The Tracking Board has searched far and wide to compile the best up-and-coming writers in and out of the industry. All the hot specs on the market, all the recent pick-ups by major talent agencies, and some of the freshest, coolest writing in the business is here in this list. We are proud to share it with you and excited to see what lies ahead for these talented writers.
